Dried figs, properties

What dried figs are good for is easy to say. They are high in sugar and low in protein and fat. Their calorie content is not indifferent: they contain about 250 per 100 grams, well over the 54 of fresh fruit, but this is a prerogative of dehydrated or dried fruit, in which sugars and other nutrients are concentrated as a result of water loss.

At this point the question arises: how many dried figs can you eat a day ? Considering how each of them weighs about 20 g and contains 54 kcal (remember that this caloric intake corresponds to 100 g of fresh fruit), we advise not to exceed 2-3.

Thanks to the fiber content, they help regulate intestinal function and prevent constipation. Finally, they are a concentrate of mineral salts , and therefore energizing and remineralizing. What are figs bad for and who can't eat them ?

  3. Cover them with a cloth (similar to a mosquito net, so that air and the sun's rays pass through but which protects the fruits from insects and dust). This operation also serves to prevent worms from forming in the dried figs .
  4. Keep them exposed to the sun all day and take care to bring them home in the evening. Continue like this for about a week, until the figs have completed their drying.
  5. Now transfer them to an airtight container or inside a glass container
